Having worked in social services for the past 13 years, I have seen first hand how much a warm coat means to a man, woman or child in need.

At my last job, I had 56 young adults on my caseload who were transitioning out of foster care. Almost every one of them didn't have enough money to afford a nice coat for the winter and COAT DRIVE's were a HUGE blessing to them.
D.I.V.E. (Dallas Independent Venue Exchange) is hosting a coat drive in Dallas this year with November 23rd being the last day to drop off coats at one of their many drop-off locations.
